Price range: US$9 - US$15
Restaurant details
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

We stopped in for lunch to see how this American franchise measured up to what we were used to. The food was exactly the same quality you expect to find in a Johnny Rockets (if you’ve been to one before): the burgers are very tasty, juicy and more than enough to satisfy a hungry man; the buns are sweet and soft brioche bread; the French fries are crispy crinkle-cut potatoes; onion rings are crunchy and delicious. In my opinion, the barbecue sauce on the ribs is too sweet and not at all spicy (but it’s a burger joint, not a ribs place).
Actually, the food was so filling that I didn’t even have room to try one of their famous shakes or desserts (apple pie or cheesecake would have been on the top of my list).
The service is very good and attentive. The only disappointment was the décor. One of my favorite parts of Johnny Rockets is the 1950’s diner feel with the checkerboard floor, red vinyl upholstered seats and the mini jukeboxes. Sadly, Johnny Rockets in Joao Pessoa has none of these.
If you are in the mood for an American-style hamburger while in the Northeast of Brazil, I highly recommend this restaurant. Besides this location, the next closest Johnny Rockets is about 425 miles (680 km) away in Fortaleza, so don’t be too fussy, come in and enjoy the good food and service.
